Science Road Show Experience

Today was My Class (Room 7’s) and Room 5’s first Science Experiment Show at Tamaki College. In this Science Experiment we witnessed different features of Science such as explosions, volume and how different things reacted to each other.

We individually toured around all the scientific examples placed out. The Station I was attracted to the most was how the bike worked when the gears were being changed. I was also attracted to the ball throwing station which calculated the result the speed of the ball when it was being thrown.

The Instructors had frequently mentioned about 3D printers which fascinated me because one of the instructors had said that people in China had connected a 3D printer to a concrete maker which together combined construct a 10 houses a day.

Sacred Heart College Interview

I was really excited about my interview at Sacred Heart College. This would ensure the Principal of SHC that I was eligible to receive the Endeavour Scholarship which is awarded to five Pasifika and Maori boys enrolling at Sacred Heart in either Years 7 or 9.  I was interviewed by Mr Dale (The Principal), Mr Leger (The First XV Coach) and three other staff.

The Interview lasted forty minutes and when I came I felt relieved and hopeful that I will be accepted.

My Mother- Descriptive Writing

If it wasn’t for Mothers we wouldn’t be alive. So Mothers are really special people in our lives and we have to be grateful for them.
My Mother’s name is Joyce and is the mother of 4 kids including me. She inspires me to do the best I can do in my learning.  

She is the most supportive lady in my life and I am truly grateful for all the things she has done for me. She is my angel and will forever be my angel. I know she is the most supportive lady in my life because every Saturday at my League games she is always there no matter what cheering for my team and motivates us to do the best we can and I am always willing to make her proud within sport and school .

She is a rather tanned person and stands at an average height. She has dark black hair that hangs below her shoulders.  Most times my Mum isn’t at home because she looks after my Nana who has dementia and isn’t able to walk. I miss my Mum heaps during the week but it’s good to know that My Nana is well looked after.
My Mother is the most important lady in my life and I will love her forever.

Holiday Writing

The Jungle Book was originally a cartoon in the mid 1960’s but when I heard this was going to be a movie I was determined to go and see it.
We finally arrived at the Sylvia Park Hoyts Cinemas I was so moved. We made it into the cinema, I had a feeling it was going to be busy because it was the first day it was released and it was also the first session of the day. We got our tickets and settled into our seats, me and my Dad were surprised because we were seated in the “BIG EXTREME SCREEN CINEMA”  

The Jungle Book was a story about a young boy named Mowgli who was raised by a pack of wolves. He was originally living in the man village when a wild tiger attacked his caregiver and left Mowgli in the man village all by himself. The Red Flower is a thing that can overpower any animal in the wild, when this occurs someone from the man village carries a fire torch which spreads the red flower into the wild and can kill animals by the fire touching any part of them.  

My favourite part of the movie was when Mowgli met a big grizzly bear, at first he thought he was dangerous but the bear turned out to be really friendly. Mowgli met the bear while he was on his way to the man village. The saddest part was when Akela (one of the leaders of the wolf pack) was killed by the wild Tiger because the Tiger was frustrated that Mowgli could escape from him. To conclude this I think Jungle Book was a really cool movie because all the effort put into the movie all made it look so real with all the effects. This had to be the favourite movie I have watched and the best thing that happened in the holiday.
